I learned something new today. Yankees have always made fun of Southerners eating grits. But for the past 100 plus years, many of them have unknowingly started their day with grits. Cornflakes are made from grits. They’re pressed and dried, and have some seasoning on them, but they’re mainly grits, the inner part of a corn kernel. I think someone ought to posthumously grant W. K. Kellogg the title of a Colonel in the Southern Army.
See what you learn if by touring Kellogg’s "Cereal City" in Battle Creek, Michigan.
For the record, if you want to eat grits the Southern way, make sure you have the kind you have to cook. Instant grits, like instant oatmeal, is only good when you’re on the trail. At home, take the time to cook ‘em and get some decent to eat. And if you really want something special, after you’re grits are cooked, mix in some sharp cheddar cheese and diced hot peppers and bake.
